Songs for Amelia Earhart

Laurie Anderson is one of America's best-known creative pioneers. Her 1982 debut album Big Science marked the start of an impressive career in avant-garde music, and the inspiration for Ars Musica theme edition 2022. Laurie Anderson will join the Brussels Philharmonic for this concert in Bozar. Based on Amelia Earhart’s pilot log from her historic attempt to circumnavigate the world in 1937, Songs for Amelia Earhart is a panoramic work that features Earhart’s words and Anderson’s signature work with song structure. All the Animals is a work for string orchestra and narration based on Anderson’s work with AI. The text is from the King James Bible, crossed with Anderson’s lyrics and texts. The orchestration of the string parts for All the Animals is by Rubin Kodheli and is based on Anderson’s Quartet for Sol LeWitt, a work based on numbers she wrote for the sculptor when she was his student.
